Abolish the 'Best Metal Performance' category at the Grammy's sign now

Since the The National Academy of Arts & Sciences, Inc. included a Best Metal Performance in the Grammy Awards 1989, the Metal Community has been looked at by The Recording Academy as nothing more than a joke. From the first award presented in 1989 to Jethro Tull, to the most recent awards ceremony presenting Slayer with the honour.

I applaud previous winners and nominees on their accomplishments, but to say that they were leaders of Metal in the music industry in their respective years is ludicrous. More often then not, winners have been either trendy, recognizable household names, or non-metal acts with catchy beats that the rest of the industry appreciates. This is not only limited to the award recipients, but a majority of nominees as well. There have been many great bands nominated, but almost never for their best performances.

With this petition, I ask that we may all raise our horns in unity, and call upon The Recording Academy to eliminate the Best Metal Performance category. The Recording Academy is not showing us respect with this award, but rather asking us, the Metal Community, to POPularize OUR music with the norm of society.
